It’s in the lovely Camden Passage in Islington, and here is what it looks like:
It’s run by Lizzie Evans (you can read all about her on their website) and it’s full of great homewares and stationery. I had to really hold back as I am skint at the moment, but here are some bits I got:
Chase and Wonder do really nice screen-printed stuff, and this card has already found a home with a bike loving friend.
I hadn’t heard of Paperways before but really like their school style exercise books, in particular, the large top margin is a nice detail. They also had them lined and in various different graph papers.
I also got a couple of washi tapes, one classic MT tape in my favourite colour (£3). I use these coloured masking tapes to stick stuff in my diary.
I thought this was a different brand, called Kamoi, but from doing a bit of research it seems like MT and Kamoi are the same brand, all manufactured by the same company (it’s kind of hard to tell as I can’t readJapanese…).
The upstairs was closed (I assume for a workshop), which is a shame, but probably for the best as it would be too tempting…
I have a feeling I’ll be seeing a lot more of SMUG!
